A new drive-through COVID-19 vaccine clinic is opening at Ewood Park this week giving local residents the chance to score their hat-trick of COVID jabs at the home of Blackburn Rovers!
From Tuesday, January 11, anyone aged 12 years and above will also be able to walk into the pop-up facility which will be based on Car Park D off Bolton Road, Blackburn.
It will be open 8.30am until 7.30pm, seven days a week, and run by a team from Everest Pharmacy, with support from Army personnel. It is offering booster jabs, as well as first and second doses to everyone aged 12 and over. 16 and 17-year-olds can also get their boosters at this site if it’s been at least 91 days since their second dose.
The new site is part of the national drive to get as many people boosted as possible due to the new COVID-19 variant and is one of only a few drive-throughs in the country.
No need to book, just drive in or walk-up. The public will be able to either go inside the mobile unit for their jab if they are a walk-in or park in a bay in their car and the vaccinator will come to them.
